The All-Marine Men’s and Women’s Triathlon Teams competed in the Armed Forces Triathlon Championship on September 11th aboard Naval Base Ventura County, CA.

Captain Emma Quinn and Second Lieutenant Alana Phillips would also score for the Marine team, finishing in 8th and 9th places, respectively.

For the men’s team, Major Tom Scovel was the highest placing Marine coming in 11th place with a 2:00:03 time. Master Sergeant Chad Holladay, Lieutenant Colonel Paul Marcy, Second Lieutenant Joey Clingerman, and Captain John Marino rounded out the scoring for the Marine team, finishing in 15th, 16th, 17th, and 18th places, respectively.

In the women’s masters’ category, Major Candace White claimed the individual silver medal as the only Marine representative. Colonel Joseph Galvin and Chief Warrant Officer 3 Stuart Shine took 4th and 6th places in the men’s masters’ race.
